What’s All the Fuss about The Walking Dead?

We’ve all been there — a game which has passed you by for one reason or another is suddenly being talked about everywhere you look. (Culture, Industry, PC, PS3, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Episode 1 "All That Remains", Xbox 360)

Nice to have a game that focuses on the characters for a change. Also it has zombies in it =)

Pretty much this. Its why I like Dead Rising 1 when it first came out, each character had a story, even the psychopaths. more and more games focus on zombies and evolving yet forget its all about the characters and situations they are put in, that makes them who they are. It's why most people got really sad about Dead Island trailers.

"The Walking Dead comic that started the whole thing is not something I particularly want to read"

Seriously missing out!

Totally agree. Love that series.

Title felt a little mis-leading, was looking for an attack on the game lol

However if you are "being forced to play a game" you will normally look at things in a negative way. Don't be "forced" to play a game, just play it.

Honestly though, The Walking Dead isn't all about horror so you are missing out! It's some of the best stories so far. I get a little turned off by gore also, but I decided to try the comics and now I'm hooked on everything. Well everything except the idiotic FPS idea from Activision, that I will be skipping.

To be honest, like most tv/movie tie ins, i thought it would be crap. Played the demo and kinda liked it, had a fiver on my account so just downloaded the 1st episode and i fell in love with the game.
Like people said, the focus on characters and story is really strong, the decisions really do make a difference and they're very tough to make at times. I only played as far as episode 2 and that episode was for me better that season 2 of the actual show.

Cant wait to get stuck into episode 3.

Zombies and realistic drama into the mix.

A zombie game that actually focuses on story rather than "ooh zombies" "ooh explosions" "ooh blood"
